Botox for Wrinkle Treatment
Botox used to reduce wrinkles is purified Botulinum Toxin A. When Botox is injected into the muscle, it blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and therefore reducing the wrinkles. A smoothing effect is seen almost immediately and it continues to improve over the next few days.
The full effects of Botox injections can be seen within 5-7 days. Results may vary on individuals, depending on the severity of wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated. The results last up to six months after which most patients gradually return to their former state. Normally, Botox Injections should be repeated every 5-6 months.
While Botox has been safely used by millions of patients, it is recommended that pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding their babies, as well as patients suffering from neurologic disease, should never use Botox. If you’re considering taking Botox injections be sure to thoroughly research the professionals in your area who are offering this service! Make sure it is done by a qualified skin doctor or dermatologist.
